Since the shark fins are second most valuable illegal trade, after drugs , the hunting is done around the world and the fins are sent to China and other countries where the Asian traditions exist. Tens of millions of sharks are every year facing a slow death because of finning. The shark is caught and they remove the fins and then throw it back into the ocean – still alive. The death is often in the end caused by starvation, being eaten by other fish or drowning since they can no longer be in constant movement and therefor not extract oxygen from the water. This long tradition has now led to some shark populations being declined to up to 98% in the last fifteen
What Whale Poaching Really is By: Logan B I believe whale poaching should be outlawed around the world. Bans have warned people to stop hunting the whales but still over 2,000 whales are killed each year. In 1958, thirty eight thousand whales were killed since then, the amount of whales killed has dropped to thirty six thousand whales from that time. There are almost four whales killed each day. If someone is caught violating the laws it will result in civil penalties up to $11,000 or criminal penalties up to $100,000 plus, one year of prison time.
When people spend money on their “hobby” they can squander over $100. This “hobby” is the reason why about 25% of the fish population has dematerialized. Researchers at Oklahoma Department of Wild Life Conversation that has many as 43 percent of the catch and released fish died in up to six days.
Devil’s Island On November 30th, 1933, in Seattle, Washington, Mr. Pyle turned on the gas and cut one of his wrists. A few minutes later his wife smelled the gas and found her husband who police said was “despondent over financial troubles,” and brought him to the hospital. The Great Depression influenced many crimes and suicides that were necessary for most people to commit due to their financial deprivation. Financial stress being the number one cause for this violence, made it very hard for many families to succeed during the 1920s. If you disobeyed the rules of society, they sent you to prison.
Three details about Crossing the Ocean are that people got diseases that killed have of the crew another reason is storms blew immigrant vessels off the boat. The last reason is about four hundred people had to shared two toilets. Poor immigrants I wish life wasn’t so hard for the immigrants as it is now the people on that boat deserved a nice trip instead of a nasty, gross frightened, awful trip. The nest story I am about to tell you is about the immigrants life and how hard it was for them.

This quotation reflects Warren’s cartoon by representing the symbols of the spike and the man being pierced; recalling that the spike in this picture is portrayed as the harm that will be caused to employees due to the hike in minimum wage, and the man representing minimum wage jobs. Russell explains how employment reduced once the wage was raised because restaurants were unable to pay all existing employees the new wage, so to be able to keep up with the wages, restaurants were forced to lay off employees to pay fewer amounts of workers. However, Russell continues to explain how the wage rose once again in July of 2016

Alcatraz’s federal prison time was up at that moment on March 21, 1963, the prison was shut down by Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy after 29 years of service. The reason after the decision was that the prison was costing too much to run. According to bop.gov “in 1959 the daily per capita cost at Alcatraz was $10.10 compared with $3.00 at USP Atlanta”. Also, citizens started to protest because of the sewage released on Alcatraz by the inmates, staff, and their families. The sewage was affecting the Bay’s environmental life and its image.
About 4.37 million chickens died following the earthquake and tsunami, causing a short in the supply of feed for overseas suppliers. An estimated 90% of fishing boats in Miyagi, Iwate, and Fukushima were unusable by the tsunami; at least 440 fishermen were killed or missing. The total damage to Japan's fishing industry was estimated at ¥1.26 trillion. It is said that the estimated economic loss may be around 171 billion–$183 billion just in the region hit by the quake and tsunami. Because of the Tohoku Earthquake and tsunami caused many lands, resources (food, human, products, machines) and enterprise in ruins, with these damaged done, Japan’s economic problems will be hard to
Red Tide: How it affects Marine Life Red tide in Florida is a reoccurring problem that threatens marine life every year. Red tide in Florida waterways has a negative impact on marine life because it produces toxins that are harmful to marine species. It lessens the amount of oxygen in the water which ultimately leads to the migration and death of many different marine animals. Millions of dollars are poured into red tide research and prevention every year to help predict when and where a red tide is going to form. All the while, millions of dollars are being lost due to a drop in tourism and bans on fishing as red tide wreaks havoc on businesses and marine life.
Everyday the fish had pooped at least 5 times and we needed to replace the sponge every single night. A few days later, the other goldfish from the fair died and then my dad went back to the completely dusty store to buy some more fish. I’m not so sure what color they were (what can I say it’s been like 4 years), but I do know one of them… WAS BLACK. Dun, Dun, DUUUUUN! Anyway, the black fish was actually mean.
Medieval Crusades Inquiry Question: How did the crusades impact the Catholic Knights? Today is a particularly bad, the seas are rough and my good friend Robert is very sea sick. We have been at sea for about two weeks but its hard to keep track because I 'm not entirely sure where we are, all I know for certain is that at midday every day we head back to land to load our ship with more water and food. We all have to get off and help load the ship but I can hear people moaning because they have blisters on their hands and the handles of the buckets are made of rope and it rubs. Yesterday was very eventful because two of the soldiers go into a fight and it ended with someone dying.
Dinosaurs are now extinct and sharks are not but if shark finning does not stop they will soon be extinct. Sharks are already an endangered species with humans killing 11,417 sharks per hour and annually it can be up 273 million sharks. Sharks may go extinct within the next few decades if the killing rate stays at 100 million sharks killed per year. The shark savers is an organization that raises awareness and saves sharks from the cruel and inhumane way of shark finning. There needs to be more people like this to save the sharks and keep them from
